uninstall version 1.6 client on macOS

Beitrag von milleron » 3. Mär 2017, 23:12

I have Version 2 running perfectly on macOS Sierra, but the client for version 1.6 is still present, too. It does not interfere with the function of the Version 2 client, but its icon still appears in the task bar and is easily confused with the version-2 client's icon. I can easily choose to "Quit" the 1.6 client, but, of course, it launches every time the computer is rebooted, so I'd like to know how to uninstall it. I thought it would be uninstalled when I uninstalled version 1.6 from the WHS 2011 Dashboard, but apparently it was not. I've searched the manual, but all I find is the method that's supposed to uninstall this old client when the older version of Lights Out was uninstalled from the Server.

The first step is to disable the automatic start of 1.6. Go to system preferences, users & groups, login items. Disable LightsOut Agent.
Now it depends if you run a WHS or a standalone server:
WHS: Remove the directory /Users/<your name>/Library/Application Support/Microsoft/Launchpad/Data/LightsOutAgent.bundle
Standalone: Remove Applications/LightsOut Agent

Thanks, Martin,
I'd already disabled the LightsOut Agent in Login Items, but I hadn't found the files under Launchpad/Data. I never would have thought to look under Microsoft/Launchpad.
All is well, now.
